View Diary: Will We Ever See 'Political' Churches Pay Taxes? (Revised) (240 comments)

  •  Maryland's top bracket rate is less than 6% (7+ / 0-)

    The 5.75% rate applies to incomes over $250k ($300k for couples). If you're making that much, you can afford to pay a little more at the margins. Interestingly, VA has the same top rate, but it applies at only $17k -- no progressive taxation for you. So, if you're making less than $250k, you're paying more income tax to the state than you would in Maryland.

    Yes, Maryland's sales tax is higher, and some counties may tax at a higher rate than some in Virginia, but Maryland has a smaller tax base and offers more services for needy.

    •  Huh. It just seems cheaper here in VA, esp. as (0+ / 0-)

      we don't have the infamous piggyback tax...which I've never understood. Everywhere I've lived (except WA), there was local income tax in addition to state. What's special about MD's?

      A friend down here told me that anyone who needed help (not sure what kind) from VA was probably not going to get it. If that's so BEFORE Ken Cucchinelli gets elected (forbid it, Almighty God!) I can't imagine what it would be like after.
